    A very useful book for the beginner who wants to take their family history to the next level. I wouldn't suggest reading it from cover to cover, but rather by subject according to your interests using the table of contents at the beginning. If you read it cover to cover, it's wordy and repetitive. Much of the information contained in the text could have been separated into some footnotes or a sidebar. As it is, you have to sort through a ton of info to get to the meat of the message. Plus, the p A very useful book for the beginner who wants to take their family history to the next level.

As it is, you have to sort through a ton of info to get to the meat of the message. Plus, the publisher needs to do a newer edition. The about.com links in this book (there are many) don't work. Still a good resource, especially when it comes to pointing you in the direction of other helpful resources.

    I'm actually quite impressed with this intro to online genealogy. It looks light-hearted, and isn't super in-depth, but there is a LOT of information in this book, and a huge wealth of resources and ideas. For the beginner to intermediate genealogist, this will be very helpful. She is also quick to point out that you CANNOT do all your research online and if you get stuck, to start over and start using local resources. There is also specific info on searching different areas of the world, which I'm actually quite impressed with this intro to online genealogy.

    Keeper Reference Book Covers a broad range of topics and contains an incredible amount of information and pointers. Includes a broad array of useful links both, free and subscription, including how-to's, methodology, and data sources. Cracked open a few brick walls when only checking the links out.

    Comprehensive book on genealogy, a good reference book for the beginner genealogist. The format was easy to follow and essential information, alerts, and links were clearly pointed out, although some links shared in the book were broken. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because without supplemental class work the book may not have provided all that I was searching.

    Originally published in 2008, with the 3rd edition being 2014, this book feels a bit out of date, as the advancements to genealogy online races ahead. Many good suggestions such as "How To" Research with step-by-step systems and helpful research log templates are useful. But much of this can be scanned rather than taken in-depth.

    Genealogy must read A must read for any genealogist. I have only two complaints. The first is the obvious and hard to control - come links are out-of-date. The other is the book could be better organized.

    Its a okay book for general advice on where to get information, there is alot of places you can search, but it really doesn't offer advice on how to search all these places (I.E. library, national records, Churchs, etc...etc) Its a okay book for general advice on where to get information, there is alot of places you can search, but it really doesn't offer advice on how to search all these places (I.E. library, national records, Churchs, etc...etc)

    Horrible! It is just a promotion for the author's About.com website. Read Genealogy Online for Dummies, 7th Ed. instead. It is far more useful. Horrible! It is just a promotion for the author's About.com website. Read Genealogy Online for Dummies, 7th Ed. instead. It is far more useful.
